Kirkland & Ellis won the following five awards at the 2018 Private Equity International (PEI) Awards:

  • Law firm of the year in North America (Transactions)
  • Law firm of the year in North America (Secondaries)
  • Law firm of the year in North America (Fund Formation)
  • Law firm of the year in Asia (Secondaries)
  • Law firm of the year in Europe (Secondaries) 

Save for the North American Fund Formation award, this marks the third year in a row that Kirkland has been honored in all of the above categories. The Firm was also previously recognized as “Law firm of the year in North America (Transactions)” at the 2014, 2012, 2009 and 2008 PEI Awards. The annual PEI awards “showcase the firms that have, in the eyes of their peers, set the benchmark during the year.” Award winners are determined by votes of readers of Private Equity International and subscribers of PrivateEquityOnline.com.

Michael Belsley, Kirkland partner and global head of Kirkland’s secondaries market practice, said “Kirkland’s strong presence in the secondaries market is a result of the team-oriented approach Kirkland takes to transactional work.”
